It is our current understanding that for Board Certification renewal the NCBTMB requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years. Of the 24 CE hours, 3 CE hours must be in ethics. Only 4 CE hours can be in self-care.
For more information regarding recertification requirements beyond just continuing education, please visit https://www.ncbtmb.org/certificants/renew/.
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork) directly. The telephone number for the NCBTMB is 800-296-0664 or visit their website at www.ncbtmb.org.
Remember, the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00) and Health Positive! is a division of the Institute. All of our continuing education programs can be used for your Board Certification renewal.
